Unicode superscript and subscript alphabetic letters

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/04

Not all letters have superscript or subscript counterparts. The counterparts are from different ranges, so might not look nice when next to each other.

I think 20th using Unicode lowercase superscript looks ugly 20ᵗʰ. With uppercase superscript it is somewhat OK: 20ᵀᴴ.

The list is from [WayBack] javascript – How to find the unicode of the subscript alphabet? – Stack Overflow:

Take a look at the wikipedia article Unicode subscripts and superscripts. It looks like these are spread out across different ranges, and not all characters are available.

Consolidated for cut-and-pasting purposes, the Unicode standard defines complete sub- and super-scripts for numbers and common mathematical symbols ( ⁰ ¹ ² ³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶ ⁷ ⁸ ⁹ ⁺ ⁻ ⁼ ⁽ ⁾ ₀ ₁ ₂ ₃ ₄ ₅ ₆ ₇ ₈ ₉ ₊ ₋ ₌ ₍ ₎ ), a full superscript Latin lowercase alphabet except q ( ᵃ ᵇ ᶜ ᵈ ᵉ ᶠ ᵍ ʰ ⁱ ʲ ᵏ ˡ ᵐ ⁿ ᵒ ᵖ ʳ ˢ ᵗ ᵘ ᵛ ʷ ˣ ʸ ᶻ ), a limited uppercase Latin alphabet ( ᴬ ᴮ ᴰ ᴱ ᴳ ᴴ ᴵ ᴶ ᴷ ᴸ ᴹ ᴺ ᴼ ᴾ ᴿ ᵀ ᵁ ⱽ ᵂ ), a few subscripted lowercase letters ( ₐ ₑ ₕ ᵢ ⱼ ₖ ₗ ₘ ₙ ₒ ₚ ᵣ ₛ ₜ ᵤ ᵥ ₓ ), and some Greek letters ( ᵅ ᵝ ᵞ ᵟ ᵋ ᶿ ᶥ ᶲ ᵠ ᵡ ᵦ ᵧ ᵨ ᵩ ᵪ ). Note that since these glyphs come from different ranges, they may not be of the same size and position, depending on the typeface.

After a nice chat with my nephew EWD, I did some research and found the above via

Naming of naming styles should reflect their casing · Issue #35243 · dotnet/roslyn · GitHub

If this is still open, please vote for it: [WayBack] Naming of naming styles should reflect their casing · Issue #35243 · dotnet/roslyn · GitHub

Having the drop down of naming styles reflect the actual output in one way or the other will make it way easier to select the correct one.

Besides that, a few new naming styles are suggested in this issue, like snake_case which is great for translating APIs that are already in that form.

TestInsight: when you think the math does not add up…

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/04

You’d think the math does not add up:

But it does: both “Success” and “Warnings” are counted as “passed”.


TL;DR: ensure the yellow “Warning” triangle is enabled
